    They don't get Egyptian geese in Iceland, and the Whitefronts they get are off limits.

    Yes, Skip Knowles went down on one of our hunts. He's also accompanied us to Argentina and will be going to other places with us too.

    With those waterfowl species and wood pigeons my guess would be The Netherlands. I saw most of them while touring around the countryside.

    Yes, we now have everything in place there. Leaving in October for 2 weeks and again in March to add to the bucket list of places visited and hunted.

    Pat, do you have any pictures of Eurasian Wigeon shot there? What's the likelihood of getting one there? Thanks

    Rick, I'd say pretty much 100% from all we have been told and since Mallards and Eurasian Wigeon are the only two legal duck species in The Netherlands, there must be a reason for it. I expect multiple opportunities to collect them on every trip. We've spent countless hours on the phone and internet with our outfitter and he's a straight-shooter and says we can target specific species on the trip to insure everyone gets what they are after. We know that Bar-headed Geese are iffy at best but do occur there. This picture, aside from the few Barnacles and Graylags are all Eurasian Wigeons. Perfect Wigeon habitat.
